At the end of BEW you can hear someone say "Did you know tonight is Bob's birthday..." Someone yells "Yeah, happy birthday Weir." So is the date on the show wrong or is there a joke happening? Bob's birthday is Oct 16...same as mine, my son, and John Mayer. Just wondering what the birthday comment was. Any ideas?

Sound of the thunder , with the rain falling down
Music. Sugaree pretty hot out of the gate
they are sounding real good on everything.
Including B.E.Women , Cassidy
Drop out on the Board is the only reason for 4 stars.
Good tune selection for 2nd set
If you listen to the drop-out during DANCIN' that is why in general i avoid most audience shows. I really don't want to hear folks going Woof! Woof! to the Grateful Dead -not that I haven't also gone Woof! Woof! at a show but i don't need to hear that aspect of the live music if I can avoid it,
I guess the alternative would be a big hole in the set or only a partial tune like some tapes from 67-73.
So I don't know what the answer is? As far as this show 5 for performance, 4 for what we grok from it.
Which isn't to shabby-- IT's THE DEAD!!!
the ROSES as a ballad closer? Wow!
And it is in the right order because you can hear the band discussing Sugar Mag but they go for e) Johnny 'B'
Ben FRANKLIN'S still famous in Philly
& the TOWER Theater is still rockin.
So in the Spirit of 1976
" Franklin's tower there hangs a bell
It can ring, turn night to day
Ring like fire when you lose your way"

Nice show, some AUD
It sure sounds like the source goes from SBD to AUD about half-way through Row Jimmy, and stays there until the beginning of Promised Land. Just FYI. Otherwise, great recording as usual.

The whole band is really on point! What a beutiful was to roll into summer for 1976. Charlie Miller with another masterful show for the archive.
At the very tail end of LLR someone in the crowd can be heard calling for M&MU. This is very significant in the annals of GD history as this is actually the only known occurrence of this happening. Fortunately it was caught on tape so the moment wasn't lost for good.
